  • Some turn some don't, my dd was breach and never turned. However 30 weeks is a bit too early to worry. Also, sometimes the dr. can turn them.

  • no worries.. my son was a doing flips in there... I was high risk and had an ultrasound and bio-physical profiles every week and the boy was never in the same position twice. They told me he was breech one week, the next day he wasn't when I went to my regular OB. He was a jumper. And it is possible that he will or can be turned. Good luck!

  • nothing to worry about. my cousin's 2nd child was like that.
    she just had to have a c-section.

  • no, you're baby can change positions any time, even during labor. even if she is still in a breech position when it's time to push, you can still have a vaginal birth. most dr's don't catch breech babies anymore bc they are no longer trained to do so. many people everyday have breech vaginal births. i would do some research on it, and also on how to spin your baby at home. if the dr was to do it, it hurts like hell!!!
